An article examined visually, through a series of maps, the association between obesity, diabetes, and sedentary transportation.
The authors, Anne Price and Ariel Godwin, conclude, “the relationship between sedentary travel and health outcomes can be misleading when additional contributing factors are not taken into account. While it is not our intent to claim a direct causal link between transportation modes and obesity rates, it is hard to deny the existence of some geographic patterns.”
